to be realistic about how we can tackle these challenges. if there is a crisis that i see in the united states for the long term, it is not the temporal issue of how we will deal with money. because i am very confident we will be able to deal with that. it is how will we bring that -- bring back our sense of what we can accomplish together as americans when we are realistic about those challenges. that is the thing i think about the word "crisis" in this country. >> mayor castro is not the first to suggest that. for 10 years now, we heard that the government is not asking all of us to do enough. >> it is interesting. the word "sacrifice," when i hear a politician say that, it usually means grab your wallet. it usually means increasing taxes. and i will give president obama credit to in his the first presidential candidate since walter mondale to run explicitly on a platform that he will raise taxes. >> he is saying he will raise taxes on the wealthy. >> according to the supreme court, he already has raised taxes. that was the basis on which the supreme court of held obamacare, that it was a ta

: yes. i am listening to everybody talking. the woman earlier talking about people in the united states spending as much as they do, that is true. i worked in a diner. i see the spending and i see the waste. my business reflects on wall street. wall street reflects on my business. when the upper class is wealthy, the business trickles down. i am doing well. when people are holding onto their money, i do not do so well. it affects the small people more than the bigger people. host: what do you do? caller: a server. host: what are the tips like? caller: they are not like they used to be. the spending is not the same. these are everyday people. these are not luxury items. they need at a diner to spend some time with the children. there is no time. it is not like this is porter house or something like that. this is a hamburger type of place. regarding our spending, i live alone. i do spend more. i believe the gas price reflects on everything. the cost of everything has gone up. as a result of the increase in gas price. i take public transportation and i still pay more. that goes up as well.
united states assistance packages focused on developing the institutions of liberty, the rule of law and property rights. >> we believe that freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. isn't that simply american values or western values? they are universal values. and even as there will be huge challenges to come, i am convinced that ultimately, government is for the people, by the people. it is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace and our world. >> a october 3, mitt romney and president obama will meet in their first presidential debate, moderate. watch on c-span. your reaction, calls, e-mails and tweets after the debate. follow online at c-span.org. >> george washington university hosted a discussion yesterday on oil and gas production in the persian gulf. focusing mostly iraq. they speak about tensions between saudi arabia and iran. -- for the fall semester. and i would just mention in the way of an advertisement that we will be having our next program on october 23. it will be on jordan. jo
've been talking this week about red lines that he doesn't want iran to cross before the united states would be involved in military action. i think he's going to lay out what his red lines are and to say to the world, listen, this is a crisis that the whole world has to deal with. i think this is seen as his final warning that if we done see movement on this issue, israel will have to act. >> i want to talk about the iranian president. i'll let you first eat a little crow. you made a prediction that was wrong. >> i thought -- i said yesterday on this show that i thought ahmadinejad would kind of go for broke, kamikaze in his last u.n. general assembly. instead, he talked about, you know, this new world order that he sees when the world powers would have less influence. but he wasn't as fiery. he didn't mention israel by name. i think a lot of people were surprised. in the statements he was saying leading up to this appearance he was much more fiery. i think in addition to ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general asking him to tone it down, i think maybe the supreme leader in iran said
. earlier this year iran threatened to close the strait of hormuz. the united states drew a clear red line, and iran backed off. now, red lines could be drawn in different parts of iran's nuclear weapons program. to be credible a red line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program. on iran's efforts to enrich uranium. now, let me explain why. basically any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. that is you light the fuse, and you set off the gunpowder. in the case of iran's plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium. the fuse is a nuclear detonator. for iran amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in big, very big industrial plants. those iranian plants are visible, and they're still vulnerable. in contrast, iran could produce the nuclear detonator, the fuse, in a lot less time. maybe u
that israel is in a position whereby no red line by the international community, by the united states, israel may have to do what it has to do and then make the phone calls. melissa: yeah. we were all sort of stunned in the newsroom and stood up and looked at this because he is holding up this giant whiteboard to make his point. what do you think the reaction will be now? >> well the reaction of course on behalf of the iranian regime and their allies, that would be the syrian regime, hezbollah in lebanon, some politicians in iraq, hamas maybe, they could attack the prime minister of israel and accuse him of escalation. reality others in the region, such as saudies, kuwaities, threatened by the iranians have someone speaking on their behalf but not a arab leader, the leader of israel. melissa: i was in the middle east recently and leaders are definitely nervous. they see this as almost an inevitable conclusion at this point. do you think 70% to a bomb is about where they are? do you think it is even further than that? >> i think iranians are working on two tracks. one is slowly gradually to ge
be accurately described as young. >> thank you so much. there is no organization in the united states that is better at serving as a forum for the principal legal issues of the day. i have been asked to comment as well on the voting rights and same-sex marriage issues. she has done such a good job in describing these cases. the two points i would make about same-sex and voting rights act cases is why would the justices get involved because these cases are not on the docket. the court family takes only one out of 100 cases. but doma has been invalidated by a federal court of appeals. if we're going to strike down a federal statute, that is our job, the supreme court's job. the voting rights act cases, several of them come on appeal. generally, you have to ask the supreme court to grant review in your case. but there are tiny slivers of cases in the united states code that allow them to go to the supreme court could but the voting rights cases they almost have to take. they suggested very serious concerns about the constitutionality of section 5. they have a lot of interest in this issu
will protect the first amendment in the united states. >> moving on to the presidential election. throughout the election season main critized the main stream media for favoring. but is it swaying the election? that's what bill and karl rove are talking about. >> when new's agency like the cbs news on the radio report the polling and it shows that barak obama is leapt to a big league they gets in people's mind and that can only help the president. that helps the president because the perception that he will be the winner? >> right. and this was not easy to dig out the numbers. they are not printed in the website and go into the instrument and dig the data out of there. >> mitt romney's wife ann going on the record with greta discussing the current state of the campaign and what it is like to watch him get critized. >> when you love someone and he's out there putting himself on the line. it is hard for the families to see them beaten up so. he goes out and makes things better. and he's really quite an extraordinary person. the only thing i can do to bring clarity to the issue is stand there a
the united states of america. we discuss news the other day, the department of water and power is going to increase rates 10%. we are having a shortage of water. they are increasing their rates. there is actually no competition at all. i will give you an example. i paid $200 per month of my department of water and power bill to underwrite people who cannot afford to pay their own water bill in los angeles. it cost me $200 a month to help them out. ashley: you are very generous. >> i'm trying to help my daughter who is a school teacher and my son who sells cars. i'm helping them. there are a lot of people who help their kids. at the same temperament are helping everybody else. select the end of the month, you may be a little bit short. wait a minute, they charged charge me another $200 a month to deliver water and power to my house. i never turn on the light were never turned on the water spigot, i still get charged $200 per month just for the privilege of having water and power. ashley: stockton, san bernardino, mammoth lakes, on the verge of declaring bankruptcy or have declared bankru
that up in the gulf of alaska, even the weather pattern's pretty tranquil on the west coast of the united states. and you can see just to the north here some of the southern portion of those clouds on that cold front to the south of that storm that will be moving in through canada during the day today, but overall, it's a very quiet day, just a few clouds are lingering on the coast. so, the forecast for today. again, with that storm up in alaska, usually the winds are out of the south and kind of spreads some of the warm air to the north, so we're going to be 82 today in portland, 83 there in boise and even seattle, after a couple days in the 60s, getting back up near 74, and we're seeing very enjoyable, warm-weather conditions continuing interior of california and down there in arizona. that's a look atweather, enjoy lasts. even san diego today not bad, up near 80. i like those big, huge storms. i'm a big fan of that "deadliest catch" show. i can just picture the boats on the big, huge storms in the gulf of alaska. >> it's always nice to get insight into your mind, bill, this early in th
speech he would say the united states was the only country on earth where we put our hands over our hearts when we sing our national anthem, which was quickly disproved by just looking on youtube. people around the world going like this and singing their national anthem. he dropped at the very next day. he never said it again. >> he paid the price. >> maybe. >> i would say that is an example of actually changing behavior, which i think happens rarely and in small increments. >> i think the other thing we were talking about before the panel with brendan, the other thing we do not know, how many conversations are going on with campaign message people, with people making ads, with speechwriters, they are talking about wording. how often are they saying, if we say that, the fact checkers will get us? i suspect that is happening a lot. the only evidence i have of that is a column written by connie schultz, who is married to sherrod brown, who says that happens in the brown campaign. i suspect that is happening in many campaigns. there is so much fact checking going on, not just with our
a stake in and it's tesla here in the united states. they're coming out and saying that they're developing plans, they'll have to slow things down, not going as quickly as originally thought. any concerns about the demand in the future for the electric car given your investment in tesla? >> i think the oem is never in a hype mode as some of the media was as far as electric cars are concerned. this transition will happen. it's a long transition. we're very very beginning. we'll see customers, but of course so far it's a niche and will take time to develop. we will continue to pioneer this market and in 10 or 20 year, electric cars will play a significant role. >> doctor, thank you for joining us live from the paris auto show. joe, becky, andrew, it does not lk like there's a bottom. we're hearing from ceos and they are not seeing a bottom yet. are you looking out at 2015, 2016 before the auto industry can say, okay, at least we see a base here. >> bad news add to go a pile of bad news we've heard recently. phil, thank you very much. and we do want to have you back here soon to talk to us mo

important innovation in public education over the past generation in the united states. there are many myths and many misconceptions about charters and about the motivations and goals of many in the charter movement. you saw some of that play out in the chicago teachers strike. beyond that there are many people in the united states who think charters are an unmitigated good or alternatively an existential threat. the reality is they are neither of those. we are exceedingly fortunate to have roland prior with us today. i will introduce roland before i introduce the rest of the panel after he finishes. the project has done considerable work with roland. we are fortunate to have been able to do that. he has prepared an extraordinary paper which he is going to summarize. i would say roland's resume is a little hard to read. you would think it must be fake or something. how could anybody have done so much so quickly? i particularly want to know what a titanium lion is but i won't blanc that year. he is doing extraordinarily important and vital and groundbreaking work. if we are going to ever turn
